5.0 out of 5 stars Best Verve Remixed to date...hands down June 11, 2008
Format:Audio CD
From the first drum crack and guitar lick of Truth & Soul's version of Dinah Washington's "Cry Me A River," I was sold. The folks at Verve have relocated their mojo with this installment in the storied Verve Remixed series. In a nod to current soul faves, Amy Winehouse, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings and all things Mark Ronson, this album slices soulfully through some of Verve's best catalog material. There are some nods to more clubby sounds via Diplo and Mocky, but the mood for volume four is soul and this could be the sleeper lifestyle record of the year. If you dug the first volume in this series, you'll definitely appreciate this as a return to form for the series. Recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars Mellow mixes, average album. July 31, 2008
By C. G.
Format:Audio CD
First off, I have to disagree with the reviewer who said that Diplo's "California Soul" remix "destroyed" Marlena Shaw's vocals. Yes, the original can't be improved upon, but out of all the remixes on this disc, Diplo's remix is probably the most faithful to the original song. It's almost like he was too timid to really mess with such a classic, so he just locked in the tempo, added some beats, low end, a few filter effects, and that's about it. The track sounds more like something Diplo would have done for his Ninja Tune album. Most of the rest of the remixes on this release range from poor to above-average. Surprisingly, the weakest remix on this album comes from one of the strongest artists: The Cinematic Orchestra. Their beatless remix of Fitzgerald's "Kick" amounts to little more than a solo guitar under Ella's treated vocal (there might be some added vocal contribution; it's difficult to tell), and some scratchy vinyl sound over the entire track. I expected a *lot* more from J. Swinscoe and company. For better or for worse, the entire album is a rather laid-back affair...there's not really a dancefloor-friendly track to be found here. It's an interesting change from the previous Verve Remixed releases, but for the most part it just feels like a missed opportunity. 3 stars, and that's being generous.

3.0 out of 5 stars Keep 'em coming April 16, 2009

Though this collection isn't as strong as the previous three, I'm still recommending it. Each time I play it, it gets better. I'm a big fan of the whole series.

2.0 out of 5 stars A huge letdown. . . January 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD
If you're expecting more bumpy bumpy, 4/4, shake your booty on the dance floor then Verve Remixed 4 isn't for you; in fact this should be called Verve ReImagined. There is very little difference between the original and the "remixed".

Almost every track is tweaked to sound like an Amy Winehouse song. The only difference is the real deal divas are providing the vocals. In fact, if you're a fan of Amy Winehouse, and wish for her to get it together long enough to put out another album, then this will tide you over until that day comes.

However, when I buy a Verve Remixed album I want Nina Simone's Little Boy Blue remixed by The Postal Service. I want Billie Holiday crooning Don't Explain backed by Dhizian & Kamien. I want to work up a sweat dancing around my living room for 60 plus minutes.

Sadly, Verve Remixed 4 doesn't deliver. If Dinah, Sarah, or Ella were alive today at the height of their youthful popularity this is what their sound would be. Unfortunately, it's not for me.

1.0 out of 5 stars The music is 10 Stars; the vinyl is -10 August 4, 2014
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
The music on these Verve Remixes are hit and miss, but when they hit it is amazing music. If you want to hear Ella or Billy or Nina sounding like they recorded today this is probably your best bet. Words can't do justice to how good some of these recordings sound, so i'm not going to try.

But as far as the vinyl release, it borders on un-listenable. The warping is more like ramps for the cartridge than anything else you've seen. And the fresh out of the sleeves scratching is something that you'd expect from someone that has never operated the machine.

So if we like these recordings, we're stuck with 16-bit cropped digital formats,

Do not buy this on vinyl.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great All the Way Through June 18, 2014
By Rob
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
Great album. I now own all Verve Remixed on vinyl and cd. The record versions definitely add another layer to the listening experience. Volume 4 delivers with 2 mixes of Nina Simone, Gimme Some and Taking Care of Business that make you turn the volume up! Also Diplos mix of Martha Shaws California Soul is epic!
